    Yep- .577 T-Rex. From Wikipedia:

    The 577 contains a .585-inch (14.9 mm) diameter 750-grain (49 g) Monolithic Solid Projectile which when fired moves at 2,460 ft/s (750 m/s) producing 10,180 foot-pounds force (13,800 J) of muzzle energy. The production model from A-square is based on their Hannibal rifle platform. This cartridge has the distinction of possessing the heaviest free recoil of all commercially available, shoulder-fired weapons, at 220 lbs into the shoulder with its heaviest solid of 750 grains. The larger caliber, .700 Nitro Express, drives a 1,000 grain solid at 8,900 foot-pounds, with free recoil of 200 lbs into the shoulder.

    And I thought jpattersonnh was being facetious with 'tyranosaurus'.

    Apparently some gun shop in Africa was

    handing this rifle to unaware shooters coming

    in off the street,

    and videotaping the results for the internet.


    NOW, let's all wonder why all these mistreated and

    exploited noobs are all anti-gun. :(

    WE are our own worst enemies...

    Holy sh!t buckets!! I just watched it on you tube... On wiki it said "a rifle intended to stop the charge of a dangerous game." I certainly hope so!
